I re-read a few books this month. I decided to write about two books on my keeper shelves that I re-read this month. The first two books in the Rarities trilogy. They were both as great as I remembered. They get alot of mixed reviews because they are very heavy on details and the art side of things. I love that though, humanities was my favorite subject in college so I loved all the history technical stuff. the romance is good but in this series the story is more and the romance is more of a sideline.
In the scorching heat of the Southwestern desert, afrightened old man knows his time is quickly running out ... as the lethal secret he protects can be hidden no longer.Risa Sheridan knows everything about gold -- its mysteries, its allure, its perils. Her boss, Shane Tannahill -- owner of the ultra-successful Las Vegas gambling mecca, the Golden Fleece -- is addicted to the stuff. Now an ancient Celtic piece is being offered to Shane for his collection, with the promise of more to come, and the casino owner is hooked. But though she shares Shane's enthusiasm, Risa is wary -- because something about this particular artifact is mysterious and troubling, something that says "stay away." It is a voice that should be heeded, because soon people are dying all around them. And whether it's an ancient curse that has taken hold of their lives or the simple, murderous greed of unscrupulous adversaries, there is suddenly no place in the surreal, blinding glitter of Vegas for Risa and Shane to hide.
I think I like the first book more than this one, but i still enjoyed this one. If you did not like the first book then you probably will not like this one. It was same style of story and writing just different characters that you meet in the first book.
